Emmerdale will run out of episodes in late May if filming does not resume, said ITV boss Kevin Lygo.

According to the program manager, the bank soaps filmed before the coronavirus was locked out will fill current schedules until the end of May.

Coronation Street has enough episodes to lead them to next month, but is expected to run out in June.

The two soaps reduced their weekly number of episodes to three a week recently, in the middle of COVID-19, ending all filming and television production.

But if the comments are interesting, that won’t stop the episodes from ending later next month.

Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival 2020, Kevin confirmed that he was pressuring Emerdale to run out of episodes in late May.

Meanwhile, Coronation Street would continue for the moment but would run out of episodes at some point in June.

According to his comments, it is also clear that the bosses of the soap are already thinking about the measures to be taken to protect those most at risk.
